A snake that grew bored with its life on the ground sprouted wings. This happens to about 1 in 500 snakes. Only about 1 in 3,000 of those will actually be able to fly.
Herpetologists are still unable to explain the willed generation of wings which can resemble bird wings, moth wings or even buffalo wings. The growth seems to be psychologically motivated and never happens to snakes ranking under a 17 on the Harrison Serpentine Depression Scale. The more dejected a snake becomes with its ground life though, the more likely it is to grow wings and fly away.
Snakes capable of flight often move quickly to a 1 or 2 on the HSDS and are considered the happiest snakes in the world (Excluding of course the Reticulated Norwegian Chocolate Guzzler). Flying snakes aren’t an entirely positive thing however, as airborne ophidians depart not only the surface but their proper place on the food chain. Most become drunk with power and begin eating birds and larger mammals. History records 14 human deaths in 2012 from anacondas in flight.
This is only half as many people as have died of nausea when “Anacondas” turned out to be their in-flight movie however, a disaster of cinema that lead to the ban on snakes on planes referenced by Samuel L. Jackson in his famous action film, “The Negotiator”.
wow i learned so much from this post, thank you

i just want everyone to know how beautiful slug junk is like your genitals will never be as beautiful as a slug’s translucent flower penis
is this like coming out of their mouths what is happening
it’s like a hatch on the back of their neck and they twine their junks together and drizzle the sperm down it into catch-pockets at the tip and then they retract em back into their hatches to get fertilized
it’s not fair
omg today tumblr and youtube taught me that slugs are dual-gendered, attract mates by leaving a special SEXY SLIME TRAIL for any interested slug-parties to follow.
Then they mate by falling off a leaf and dangling upside down from a giant snot-rope and entwining their enormous neck-dicks, which EXPAND INTO LARGE PETALS so that sperm can trickle down them into little dick-pockets.
And then the first slug fucking drops the second slug onto the ground and they part ways. That is like the ultimate one-snot-rope stand. amazing.
Why can’t neck-dick mating be a trope like alpha/beta/omega is a trope. Like how amazing/awkward would it be if instead of getting a hard on every time your crush showed up, the BACK OF YOUR NECK OPENED AND YOUR GENITALIA STARTED WAVING AROUND.
SENPAI WOULD DEFINITELY NOTICE YOU.
Aja, you have out-weirded yourself, and I respect that.
the poop lets itself die so a dandelion sprout can use it to grow but some of the poops soul remains in the plant when it blooms and then all the dandelion fluffs blow into the wind and i am really upset
End sex positivity

Any Animal That Touches This Lethal Lake Turns to Stone
There’s a deceptively still body of water in Tanzania with a deadly secret—it turns any animal it touches to stone. The rare phenomenon is caused by the chemical makeup of the lake, but the petrified creatures it leaves behind are straight out of a horror film.
Photographed by Nick Brandt in his new book, Across the Ravaged Land, petrified creatures pepper the area around the lake due to its constant pH of 9 to 10.5—an extremely basic alkalinity that preserves these creatures for eternity.

The Most Intense Color of Any Living Thing on Earth
Also known as the marble berry, Pollia condensata is a wild plant that grows in the forests of several African countries. The berries are not edible, but they have an extremely rare property. They produce the most intense color of any living thing on Earth. Even after the berries have been picked from the plant, they stay the same shiny, vibrant, metallic blue color for many decades.
The vast majority of colors in the biological world are produced by pigments—compounds produced by a living organism that selectively absorb certain wavelengths of light, so that they appear to be the color of whichever wavelengths they reflect.
However, the marble berry’s skin has no pigment. The berries produce their vibrant blue color through nanoscale-sized cellulose strands that scatter light as they interact with one another. Thus the fruit’s color is even visible at the cellular level as pictured above.

nordin seruyan photographs a snail in central borneo asking a frog if he wants a ride
OMFG THIS IS MY FAVORITE PHOTOSET OF ALL TIME
not 100% on whether it’s genuinely the same frog and snail throughout, but whatevs.
Water pooling on a giant mushroom
You know what’s just so fucking awesome is the sheer number of and variety of microscopic organisms that will have lived several generations in this puddle by the time it and/or the mushroom are gone.
They live in an isolated stagnant ocean enclosed by an incomprehensibly vast fungus god.
Don’t we all.
